Delaney will be five tomorrow! We are busy planning and prepping for this weekend’s Dumbo Circus party she requested. We’re trying to keep it simple and inexpensive, while still meeting all her party requirements! Here’s a few of the details that are ready to go:
Invitations – I was inspired by these to create a simple ticket-style invitation. I also had to incorporate some simple Dumbo and Timothy Mouse clip art to keep the birthday girl happy! Fonts I used were Circus and Carnivalee Freakshow.
Bubbles – We’ll be having a few carnival-style games with a bucket of prizes at each station. I’m trying to keep the prizes simple and useful (or edible!). We raided my scrapbooking paper stash for colorful prints and added a simple strip of paper to cover up the labels on these inexpensive bottles of bubbles.
Paper Cones – These will hold popcorn at the Concessions table. More scrapbooking paper at work! I’m going to make Pink Party Popcorn (and possibly purple, too!). I will stand them up in a block of foam with skewers (idea from here).
Magic Feathers – This was Delaney’s idea, to make magic feathers like Dumbo had in the movie. Daddy cut out these wood feathers with the scroll saw — aren’t they awesome? I know the kids will love decorating these with paint and glitter. We’ve got Daddy busy with some cardboard cut-out decorations, too….
I’ll share more of our ideas as I get them finished! Back to work…. :)
